Pinrose Mystical Misfit: $65
Spring (get it?!) for this warm floral fragrance if you're in the market for a personal perfume that will turn heads. Though this fragrance is on the pricier side, it comes in a cute pink bottle, and the key notes of peach, berry and patchouli make it worthwhile. Don't believe us? Check out the Sephora reviews, all of which give this seasonal scent five stars.
Spring's Eden Reed Diffuser: $26
Not only is this reed diffuser from Anthropologie pretty to look at, but it smells great, too. This particular scent, pomegranate peony, has notes of Roman chamomile, pink apple blossoms and pomegranate, that are wrapped in a bright blend of lychee, vetiver, vanilla and musk. In other words, it will brighten up any room with its bold floral profile. In case you're wondering how it actually smells, take one step into an Anthropologie store, as this is their signature scent!
What Would Love Do?: $36.95
Whether you're looking to fall in love this spring or keep things going with your current S.O., this Lush perfume has you covered. Described as an "alluring aroma that captures the sometimes dizzying sensation of falling head over heels," this fragrance combines notes of lavender and zesty tangerine. Count us in!
Kai Room-Linen Spray: $56
Simply put, you can't go wrong with anything from Kai. The celeb-favorite company, which counts Ellen Pompeo and Zazie Beetz as fans, only has two scents, but that's all you need. Its signature fragrance is described as a "light and intoxicating scent of gardenia wrapped in white exotics," and it comes in a room diffuser, candles, perfume and more. We're partial to the home spray because it's safe to use in your room and on your sheets, assuring that the first thing you smell when you wake up in the morning is nothing short of spectacular.
The Ritual of Sakura Fragrance Sticks: $29.50
"Sakura" means cherry blossoms in Japanese, and spring is when the gorgeous cherry blossom trees bloom. In fact, for the Japanese, cherry blossom has symbolized the rebirth of nature and purity since ancient times. In addition to notes of the picturesque flower, these fragrance sticks (which you can place in any room and are even small enough to brighten up your locker) also boasts the soft scent of rice milk. The two fragrances combine to create a sweet and creamy aroma.
Black Coconut Sands Fine Fragrance Mist: $14.50
Not quite a perfume, not quite a body spray, this new personal scent from Bath & Body Works not only delivers coverage that makes you smell downright delicious (in this case the fragrance is a tropical mix of coconut milk, tonka bean, jasmine, sea salt musk and black sand that's reminiscent of Bali) but it also contains aloe that's designed to nourish your skin. Isn't that what everyone needs after a long, cold winter?

Fake Lashes & Camera Flashes Candle: $28
Not only does this candle from Coal and Canary have an adorable, rhyming name, but it also features a fresh smell thanks to a mix of fruity and floral notes including passion flower, açai and jasmine. As the product description states, this item was "created with A+ selfies in mind" and will "fill your air with confidence." Furthermore, since the hand-poured candle boasts 45 to 50 hours of burn time, your room will smell fresh all season long.
Silver Coast Unisex Perfume: $24.99
Unisex perfumes are becoming increasingly popular, and this fresh fragrance from Good Chemistry is certainly appealing to both guys and gals. It's got notes of citron, ocean and rosemary, which will leave you smelling like a relaxed day at the beach. It's also vegan and cruelty-free, and doesn't contain any parabens.
Surreal Botanical Reed Diffuser: $16
These diffusers from Urban Outfitters come in three scrumptious scents, but we're partial to the Sunny Daze version since it's named after what it feels like we've been waiting forever to experience. Not only does the fragrance boast notes of grapefruit, orange, peach, jasmine and musk, but it comes in a bottle that looks exactly like—what else?—a warm spring day.

Amazing Grace Magnolia Perfume: $50
This breezy yet complex, new scent from the beloved Grace family of fragrances is a must-have for spring. The fresh, floral perfume boasts notes of Italian bergamot and nectarine accord, which mingle with sweet magnolia and violet. Additionally, warm musk, solar amber, and a wisp of driftwood add depth and complexity to this bright and beautiful new blend. The pretty bottle and the perfume's pink hue also make it a beautiful touch to any dresser or vanity.
